The Roads/Boat Trips Not Taken

The OTHER Alaska vacation, the one we didn't take, is the cruise up Alaska's fjords and glaciers, typically leaving from Vancouver and traveling the 'Inside Passage' past Juneau and Sitka.. The highlight of THAT trip is Glacier Bay National Park, accessible only by sea...

Juneau - the only state capital not accessible by land! It's in Alaska's panhandle, a thousand miles southeast of most of the state!

The other Denali experience - the Denali Highway leads hundreds of miles east of the park on a gravel road.. An absolute no-no for rental cars...
